Big Idea...what happened? Where's the humor we have come to expect?
These are the words I wrote about the widely succesful computer animated Veggie Tales Videos:
"Computer animated veggies...who would think of something kids hate to eat and apply morals to them, to make the best Christian videos ever? Big Idea productions. I think we all need to salute these guys. They take the same technique as the Simpsons (few people do all the voices, great humor, etc.) and apply, as I said before, morals. Great for kids, and even fun for us adults.
Ignore the woman who said they get tiring after watching a long time...I own them all, and watch them constantly, and to tell the truth, I can't get enough limbless vegetables with morals..."
Here's what I think about the cartoon "Larry Boy" adventures:
Big Idea...what happened?
I guess compared to some cartoons produced by conglomerate business associations bent on greed and destruction, these are good, but Big Idea never should have deviated from their best productions: animated veggies.
Larry looks okay as a cartoon, but the humor we have come to expect is gone. Luckily, after this cartoon, Big Idea continues to release the CG Veggies. With that in mind, it doesn't hurt to watch the cartoon. Without realizing the past films, this cartoon is good, but in light of those other Veggie Tales films in the past eight years, this is a disgrace. So, I have mixed feelings. Maybe you won't...I'm confused.
